Brain Tattoos


"Across the Blackwater" by Helen Tilston



"Original Art Work is a tattoo for the brain and will not scar the body"
Helen Tilston


A rare and beautiful woman who takes the road less travelled.
Our most recent collector is 25 years old.  She is tall, slender and stunningly beautiful.   She is in the world of fashion.  She confided that she is confident in her taste for design and paintings and has been visiting art galleries and museum from a very early age.   She knows colour and the finite nuances of shade and values.    She  said she likes to build a relationship with the artist and wants to know the heart and personality behind the painting. Her late father advised her to be very careful in preserving her home and only invite those with a good spirit.    Over tea, in my studio, she spotted this quote:


"Original Art Work is a tattoo for the brain and will not scar the body"
Helen Tilston   (This quote hangs in my studio)


She shared that she is vehemently opposed to tattoos and finds them repulsive.     She will not date a man who has a tattoo.  

Was your taste this strongly formed when you were 25 yrs old?
